Are you sure you want to dedicate your copyrights to the public domain? I think they have different levels of licences on the uploader. I think you can set certain restrictions on commercial use of your material.

Yes, choose the Creative Commons attribution you desire. This is the license that creators like myself are using here. It's certainly worth considering, when you upload Your Items.

Creative Commons AttributionYou [any library patron] must attribute the work in the manner specified by the author [Lynn, or myself] or licensor (but not in any way that suggests that they endorse you or your use of the work).

• Generally speaking, I have stipulated ONE Restriction for my work - non-commercial use only. There are some items I created and uploaded to The Archive that fit this model. However, I have also created Items on The Archive for other people. I recently created This Item for Chicago Independent Media Center. In this case, it was attributed to "Universal" - Public Domain Dedication.

• I have many Audio Items here in several collections. Many of My Items are very old live music tape recordings that I taped. For all of these, I stipulate TWO Restrictions - 1) non-commercial use only; 2) no modifications of my work
